July 4th

We had a great 4th of July!  

The kids really enjoyed the Oakley parade that morning.  We had the perfect spot and the weather was beautiful. 

Logan loved seeing all the horses, tractors and of course the Firetrucks!

 Logan had fun collecting all the candy that was thrown and he got way too much!  

The babies enjoyed all the action, especially the free ice cream and didn't seem to be bothered too much by the loud noises of the Firetrucks.


     In the evening we went to Stew and Allison's house.

 We had a great BBQ with lots of yummy food.

   We thought we would put the twins down to sleep at their normal time but they weren't even fussy and loved being outside with the glowsticks watching the fireworks that we decided to let them stay up. (They didn't fall asleep until almost 11 on the car ride home)!
 It was so fun seeing the kids have such a great time.  Fireworks were coming from all angles it was Awesome!!  Thanks for the great party Stew and Allison!

Well...I'm just going to post and then hopefully one day I will have the time to catch up!  (I think that's the hardest part is just telling yourself to move forward and not think about all the posts you haven't done yet but to keep going!)

We recently celebrated all the kids Birthdays!  The Twins turned ONE on May 2, and Logan turned THREE on June 12th!

My sister Emily always captures the perfect pictures!

Logan's Party
Logan's older cousins were nice to join us for a morning at the Oakley Park!  We only lasted about 30 minutes as it was such a hot day!  That evening we celebrated with a Splash Pad party at Grandma and Grandma Grow's house.  Some of Logan's Bevan cousins came up to celebrate!

 Too hard to get everyone to look into the bright sun at the camera. :)

He often sings the Birthday Song at home as he is playing with his toys.  I think he was excited that this was finally the REAL thing!

Some of his new Birthday Toys! 

Logan's lucky to have such nice older cousins that let him tag along.

    We did some "Cake Smash" pictures earlier in the week in Peoa.  They were so Funny!  We all weren't sure how it would go at first as the twins were a little grumpy, buy luckily once the cake came out they perked right up!  Em and Meliss were so nice to make it fun and special for us by helping with the decorations.

Brynlee actually ate more than Brayden, he just made a big mess!

Birthday Celebration

The morning of their birthday we had pizza at a nearby park with a few cousins. Then we ate hotdogs and cake that night.

Crazy Logan

Logan is a CrAzY kid these days! He is so fun to play with and watch, but the last few days he has sure thrown me for a loop!He now climbs onto anything and everything he can! Oh and get out everything and anything he can! AGH! It is espeically difficult when I have both babies in my lap feeding them and can do nothing. This is what I got to witness this week!
Yep don't worry, I have now latched the cupboards and drawers so that he can't get up there anymore! We will hope it works and he doesn't discover a new way.
Also the other day he was in the bathroom flushing the toilet while I was feeding the twins. I haven't yet discovered what might have been flushed, I'm hoping just water. :)

Michael's Birthday

We tried to make it a special day! Logan and I decorated our bed with candy bars and notes to Michael...but being a 2 year old Logan didn't think it was very fun that he couldn't get on top of the bed and mess it all up and eat it all! Michael took off work at 12:30 and then went to see a movie. (He loves to see movies, and he doesn't mind going by himself so we figured it would be easier if he just went then find a babysitter for all 3 kids, haha!) Then he came home and we had a relaxing afternoon doing some projects (yes Michael loves to get stuff done even on his birthday). We then went and got take out for dinner, wings Michael's favorite and a Coldstone ice cream cake. That night the neighbor found out it was Michael's birthday and excitedly invited him to go see a movie that night with he and his son. So yes Michael got to see another movie! So...we had to rush the cake and presents because the movie was about to start. So this is the only picture we have to document. The twins were fussy so there I am in the background rocking them and Michael served me some cake. :) We sure love Michael! He is an amazing Dad and Husband!

Logan's 2 Year Appointment

I joked with the doctor at Logan's 18 month appointment (while I was pregnant with the twins) that hopefully we would make it in at his 2 year appointment! I knew Logan would turn 2 shortly after the twins were born and was afraid we would forget or be too busy to take him in. Yep!...if you look at the date on his stats you will see we got a little behind! haha :) It is so fun to see Logan grow up and learn so many new things. But I have to say my favorite thing recently is when he will be playing with his toys and walk past me and come give me a big hug and kiss "just because." :) We sure do love him!
He was a great boy at his appoinment and didn't even cry when he got his shots. He just gasped like "what just happened?", but I was able to quickly distract him when I told him it was time to go get a sucker in the hall! :)

Summer Fun

Enjoying the nice weather together. :)
